Help Make a Difference
As a Heartland Volunteer, you can spend just a little of your time and talents - and make a very big difference in the life of a patient and family!
Volunteers are the HEART of Heartland Hospice! We are looking for special individuals to join our growing team. We consider the chance to be involved in the lives of our patients and families both a sacred opportunity and a privilege. The love, respect, and friendship our hospice volunteers provide are vitally important to our patients' overall well-being during challenging times. Heartland volunteers offer support, companionship, and compassionate help -interacting directly with patients and families.
When you become a volunteer, we will provide you with a detailed, self-paced orientation to the hospice program, so you will fully understand our caring philosophy and goals and have the skills needed to assist patients and their families. As a Heartland Hospice Volunteer, you can donate time that fits into your personal schedule, as little or as much time as you would like. You will partner with the Volunteer Coordinator to determine the best role to fill.
As a volunteer, you help determine which tasks you’re best suited to perform. The tasks of volunteers include:
- Providing a friendly visit to lift a patient's spirits
- Reading, or providing a comforting touch
- Staying with patients so family members can get a much-needed rest
- Sitting vigil with patients in their final hours
- Playing or singing soothing music to patients
These and other tasks are why hospice volunteers are such an essential part of the Heartland Experience.
